We are loving this 40's inspired story with the lovely Kate Moss wearing Chariots on Fire's

The lady herself: 'Charlotte Perriand en Savoie, vers 1930'
If you are in or around Paris this summer, take a moment to see Charlotte Perriand: Photography to Interior Design, at the Petit Palais. This fascinating perspective on her work takes you to the core of her inspirations as a designer by looking at the role that photography played in her creative process. Her use of photography shaped ideas about the "laws of nature", cataloguing components of both our natural environments and man-made urban environments. This meditation on the shape of things directly flowed into her thought process informing much of her furniture design, experimentation with spatial arrangements, forms and materials use during her time at the Le Corbusier/Pierre Jeanneret studio. Many of the photographs document objects found on her numerous walks. 'The most important thing to realise is that what drives the modern movement is a spirit of enquiry,' she once said. 'It's a process of analysis and not a style.' This exhibition definitely exposes us to her sense of curiosity.

These images of fireworks by Pierre Le Hors - I LOVE. Although in black and white, it reminds
me of warm, colorful summer nights in Japan.
During a recent trip to SF Makiko took us to this bright yellow Victorian Gem in the dogpatch.
